My main areas of research are epistemology and the philosophy and ethics of space exploration.  I am interested in questions of epistemic value as they pertain to the value of the kind of knowledge and understanding produced by organized research.  In particular, I am interested in accounting for the value of the knowledge and understanding that space exploration provides.  Within the ethics of space in particular I defend a position according to which scientific values should be prioritized in the exploration and development of space.
